Eagles discussing Michael Bennett trade with teams

Eagles discussing Michael Bennett trade with teams

He registered nine sacks and 34 tackles during the 2018 campaign.

Bennett, a three-time Pro Bowler (2015-17), who has already won a Super Bowl ring with Seattle, is being traded for the second straight March, having been deemed too expensive for Philadelphia to keep.

Philadelphia has discussed trading Bennett with other teams, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, which cited multiple National Football League sources. New England will send a fifth round pick in the 2020 draft to acquire Bennett and a 2020 seventh round pick from Philadelphia.

Last season was another great year for Bennett. even at age 33 he doesn't appear to be slowing down. So, it seems as if the Patriots are going with the temporary option that can give a solid year or two without the long-term commitment.

The Eagles don't need to rush to make a decision, as they're already under the 2019 salary cap, though if they intend to pursue any free agents clearing that $7 million off the books would help.

"I'm not willing to take a pay cut; I actually want a pay raise", Bennett, then still a member of the Eagles, said during an appearance on The NFL Network on Friday morning. Bennett didn't have a sack in the game, but he did generate five quarterback hits, a holding penalty, and he changed the entire structure of New England's passing game-fearful of Bennett's mad rush to the pocket, they went with quicker drops and more angular routes.

Bennett earned a raise and Philadelphia should have rewarded him.

Naturally, people were quick to point to the Bennett trade and say that this spells the end of Trey Flowers The Patriot.

Martellus Bennett played two seasons with the Patriots in 2016 and 2017, before retiring in the 2018 offseason to focus on creative off-the-field pursuits. The likelihood of Flowers remaining a Patriot just slimmed down tremendously.
